Contrast Matrices

Computes contrast matrices for several multiple comparison procedures.

Keywords
misc, Dunnett, Tukey
Usage
contrMat(n, type = c("Dunnett", "Tukey", "Sequen", "AVE", 
                     "Changepoint", "Williams", "Marcus", 
                     "McDermott", "UmbrellaWilliams", "GrandMean"), 
         base = 1)
Arguments
n

a (possibly named) vector of sample sizes for each group.

type

type of contrast.

base

an integer specifying which group is considered the baseline group for Dunnett contrasts.

Details

Computes the requested matrix of contrasts for comparisons of mean levels.

Value

The matrix of contrasts with appropriate row names is returned.
